Margie Hinton. Fence. July 03rd , 2018.
Before you start building your fence you need to lay out the area properly to get a good idea for where the fence is going to sit in proportion to the house and surrounding area.It can be helpful to run string lines at the elevation that the fence will be at in terms of its finished height. You can run these string lines both at the top and at the bottom of the finished height of the fence.
The next step is to figure out how high you want your fence to be. Privacy fences are typically about six feet tall whereas picket fences are only about three feet tall.
As I mentioned in the beginning we thought installing a fence on our own would be no big deal however after settling on a fence we loved we knew we were in over our heads. The aluminum decorative fencing we ordered was elaborate and needed professional installation. Being that there are a number of fencing companies available throughout Michigan it is important that our first stop was the BBB in our area. Along with checking in to make sure we were dealing with only people known to be rated as professionals we next went to our family, friends and co-workers to determine if anyone had recently had a fence installed and used one of the BBB recommended professionals. Thankfully one stood out as a reference from a colleague. We were able to determine that the company operated in a manner that was expected in a professional arena.
When the manufacturer combines synthetic materials with wood particles to create a hybrid between the two, it's called a Composite. Be sure that your Fence Builder is clear about the components of the proposed fence. Is it all vinyl or a composite? And is it premium or builder's grade? With synthetics and composites, it's best to see an actual sample rather than relying on a picture, so you can feel the texture and density yourself.
The next step is to place other posts between the end posts. It is recommended to start out placing the posts eight feet apart. You can use a plumbing line made out of string and attached to the posts with nails to make sure that they are all the same height. Use the same technique to set these posts as you did on the end posts.
